GoSee presents : James Turrell - Geometry of Light & the world's largest ever installation at the Wolfsburg Museum

James Turrell, born in 1943, Los Angeles is a contemporary light artist. He has dedicated his complete works to experimenting with the vast array of natural and artificial light available. In his work, light and space become processes of experience, which reflect the basic foundations of aesthetic perception.

The book’s central focus lies on his Sky Spaces group of work, which he developed during his artistic career to become his own independent art form. The accompanying essays stem from scientific, philosophical and art historical views, and explore the development and meaning of these experiential spaces, their concept and the realisation of the Roden Crater Projects, in the Arizona Desert, which is where the artist constructed a sky observatory in 1974.

The editors are the Unna cultural group, Ursula Sinnreich, intrdocution by Axel Sedlack, essays by Gerhard Buurman, Gernot Böhme, Julian Heynen, Max Rheiner, Agostino De Rosa, Ursula Sinnreich and Christian Weber.

Preview: James Turrell has created the world’s largest ever installation to be shown in a museum, for the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. Two connecting rooms with a surface area of 700m2 and a height of 12 metres will house the viewing and sensing space – which are both entirely empty, save for a slowly changing coloured light, which will engulf these entirely.
